Holiday haiku

A bit belated, but we’re still easing into the New Year.


frosty day

fog fills the cold air

trees, grass, shrubs covered in frost—

the winter solstice

T-rex with Christmas present

busy Christmas market

last-minute chaos

a season of peace and joy

spent rushing madly





techno dance music

steady pounding beats

techno Christmas music plays

after Bing Crosby

“How was your Christmas?”

mini zombie garden gnomes

will rock my plantings

squirrel eating a nut in winterfirst meal of the year

squirrel nibbling a nut at sunrise

flicks his tail with joy




dejected woman

it’s a brand new year

a fresh start, a bright outlook . . .

back to the office


Today’s haiku

aloha shirts

bright Hawaiian shirts

mock me from the closet with

their floral patterns


-from the “what do I wear today?” quandary

Today’s haiku – four

christmas card

writing Christmas cards

wanting to express my love

no time—must mail now




reading in bed

day to myself—joy!

reading in bed, taking walks

watching falling rain






winter cider

bad Christmas movies,

writing cards, drinking cider—

holiday delights




rain gutters

grey blanket of sky

waterfalls from the gutters—

Oregon winter

Today’s haiku

Japanese tea ceremony


that card I just sent

the one I struggled to write

will arrive too late


-in memory of June Moriyasu

Today’s haiku

hands holding each other

she’s in hospice care

in the card what can I say

but ‘thinking of you’?


-on hearing of a tea teacher’s decline

Today’s haiku

old mailed packageUSPS <sigh>

why do you make it so hard

to send mail abroad?


-trying to “Click N Ship” packages to Japan, with no instructions at all of what to attach to the packages of the three (3!) separate receipt/customs declarations
